Thousands attend Beirut rally in protest of Israel's operation in Gaza

Tens of thousands of Lebanese Hizbullah supporters poured into the streets of southern Beirut late on Monday afternoon, protesting Israel's air assault on the Gaza Strip. The protesters carried Palestinian, Lebanese and yellow Hizbullah flags and shouted "Death to Israel," and "At your service, Gaza!" The massive rally was called for by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah who in a speech on Sunday urged crowds in the Arab and Islamic world to rise up in support of Gaza. He declared Monday a day of mourning and solidarity with Gaza.
